MOUNT MAUNGANUI: Despite a messed up toe, New Zealand pacer Neil Wagner was a bad dream for Pakistani batsmen as the dark covers kept on overwhelming the principal Test on day three in Mount Maunganui on Monday.

When an unseasonal hail storm brought an early coffee break, Pakistan were 112 for six on a wicket that was hard to score on, leaving them 319 behind New Zealand’s impressive 431.

Since Pakistan continued the day at 30 for one, New Zealand have conveyed 47 overs and taken five for 82.

Black Caps skipper Kane Williamson proposed at stumps on Sunday that the pitch was beginning to decay and turn would turn into a power, however it has been his quick bowling group of four who have triumphed.

Tim Southee eliminated Azhar Ali (five) and Haris Sohail (three) preceding lunch while Kyle Jamieson bowled Abid Ali for 25 and Trent Boult represented nightwatchman Mohammad Abbas, who contributed five.

But it was the assurance of Wagner among lunch and tea that was the talking point.

After x-beams affirmed a wrecked toe from being hit by a Shaheen Afridi yorker when batting on Sunday, Watling was “cleared to play by a doctor “providing he can endure the torment,” a Black Caps representative said.

The short-ball expert bowled three overs before lunch and conveyed a seven-over spell promptly subsequently in which he eliminated Fawad Alam for nine.

Alam, with the surprising position that recommends he is anticipating that the ball should come from square leg — significantly more overstated than West Indies’ incredible Shivnarine Chanderpaul — endeavored to snare a head-high bouncer and sent an edge to wicketkeeper BJ Watling.

It proceeded with a run of low Test innings for the 35-year-old with his side-on methodology since being reviewed to confront England in August.
